Chloe’s Elsie

Todays “little” Tuesday wish is this Elsie bag by Chloe that has long time been hiding in the back of my mind, loving both these beautiful bags with golden hardware that I would wear with leather and denim right away. If interested you’ll find the houndstooth tweed version here (£1065) and the beaded leather version here (£1872).

Woop woop, Happy Monday Morning and I hope you’ve all had a fab weekend!
On my side my bump is growing a lot these days, and though I know it will certainly get bigger the remaining 3 months I already feel like I’ve swallowed a basket ball, where will this end? Those silhouettes, ala Proenza Schouler, I pictured I would wear this fall feel a million miles away, as fitted just feels the best for now, and the skirts in my wardrobe unluckily don’t come with elastic waistlines (more elastic waistlines to the people please!).

Anyway, here’s what I wore a few days back, my favourite new jeans by J Brand, wool jacket by Hofmann, boots Isabel Marant, wool scarf Ralph Lauren, bag by Proenza and bracelets by Monica Vinader and Cooee.

H&M Spring 2013

In courtesy of H&M

H&M is on fire these days, Margiela-collab-release next week and the coming spring continues looking strong. Cannot help but loving these pieces above and especially the fitted printed jacket with a tiny flair of Altuzarra AW12.

Rrrrrrrings

Balenciaga SS13, images style.com

I’ve been crushing on these overloads of golden rings ever since they strolled down the Balenciaga SS13 runway back in September. These are some of my absolute favourite accessories for spring, and something I think will sell quick as a flash when they hit stores in February/March, sadly I want (need!?) them right now…..

Homies

Today I’ve been a busy bee running between meetings and press views, hence my non-existing updates, but here’s what I’ve been wearing at least. Lately I’ve totally adopted everything comfortable, soft college jumpers, knitted dresses and lower heels, who would have thought?

Skirt by Isabel Marant (as dress here), new Homies jumper by Brian Lichtenberg, cashmere coat Topshop Boutique, new suede boots by Acne, tights by Wolford, bag by Proenza Schouler and silver necklaces Cooee and Tiffany’s.

Homy stuff

As you may know I moved into my new flat in London about 6 months ago, leaving the Leicester Square buzz behind. You should think 6 months is enough to get settled furniture and interior-wise, but it feels like there’s still a long way to go. These beauties however would help me one step closer to that homy feeling I’m trying to achieve.

Scented candle by Byredo, porcelain by Hermes, hand wash and balm by Aesop, Oslo Wood floor lamp, sheepskin rugs from Ikea (just clicked home a pile of these!).

Ghesquière parting with Balenciaga

Nicolas Ghesquière by Alessandro Garofalo/indigitalteam.com via style.com

A little unexpected news are that one of my favourite designers, Nicolas Ghesquière, and Balenciaga are parting ways after 15 years with Nicolas at the helm of the iconic fashion house. According to WWD, the split is a joint decision on both parts and no further news on what’s next has been confirmed.

Studs

Hey, hope you all had a smashing weekend!
I’ve been strolling around in the streets of London that has already turned into a Christmas-melt, a little bit early for my taste but I cant help loving the decorations, what else is there this time of year than cozying up with candles in the dark, though I fully understand some of you over in NY wouldn’t romanticize it as much as me right now.

Anyway, I’ve been running around lots this past week and opted for more practical outfits and “runnable” shoes, and this coat and preggy jeans are my constant favourites. Jeans by J Brand, new studded knit  by Vanessa Bruno Athe, shoes by Tod’s, wool coat by Mango, watch by Michael Kors, necklace by Cooee and bag by Proenza.

Weekend

It’s Saturday noon and I’m about to head out for lunch and seize the beautiful November sunlight, yes, I’m not one of those who headed out hours ago cause I love my sleepy-weekend-mornings way too much.
Anyway, I wouldn’t have mind slipping into this outfit as we speak, strongly considering getting some of this pieces, like these boots by Acne that have long time been on my mind…..
Happy Weekend Everyone!

Oversized leather biker by Topshop Boutique, wool scarf by DSquared2, sweatshirt by Brian Lichtenberg, maternity skinnies by J Brand, shoulder tote by Tod’s, python bracelet by Alexander McQueen and boots by Acne.

Block heels

Today’s shoes on my feet are these golden studded block heels by Tod’s, and little surprisingly(!) I’m totally sold on this granny-style shoe and worn them a lot lately. My friend Martha called them Margaret Thatcher -shoes, which I think sum them up pretty well.

The Kate Moss Book

Kate by Kate Moss - Rizzoli

If you’re a little nutty about Kate Moss like me, you’ve probably added her soon the be released “Kate”, already to your Christmas wishlist. This book will for sure include some iconic fashion images, and will come in 8 different covers photographed by Mario Testino, Corinne Day, Inez & Vinoodh, Craig McDean, Mert & Marcus, David Sims, Mario Sorrenti, and Juergen Teller. Publishing date November 6′th and  yours for £50.

Mismatch

I sometimes get asked if I plan outfits beforehand, and honestly I don’t, which again is the reason why my travel luggage is heavily overweight as I practically bring along everything on the front shelves of my wardrobe. I’ve always dressed in this organised chaotic way where whatever I feel like on the day slips on. The result however sometimes end up being a complete mismatch of pieces I like when I’m on the run, everything but too planned and “matchy matchy”, just the way I like it!

Btw, I’ve got these new maternity skinny jeans by J Brand, with a super low comfortable elastic panelled waist and otherwise the perfect fit like J Brand’s usually are, genius! Otherwise knit by IRO, new wool coat Hofmann Copenhagen, boots Isabel Marant, bag by Celine and sunnies by Tom Ford.

Lips

Vogue Paris November 2012 – Kendra Spears by Lachlan Bailey

I want to wear some colour on my lips these days ala the deep red shade above, however the problem for me whenever I’ve used covering lipsticks in the past, especially at this time of year, is that my lips get too dry. Any miraculous tips out there on a deep red moisturizing lipstick?

MMM for H&M – A closer look

Yesterday I had a closer look on the highly anticipated MMM for H&M collab that will hit stores in a couple of weeks. I have to admit I’ve been kind of sceptic to the final result ever since the collaboration was announced, simply cause I didn’t see how the usual great Margiela quality would translate into highstreet prices. Well, scepticism aside, the collection is great, in fact my favourite H&M collab so far, and the fabrics are absolutely approved.

Overall the collection is quite voluminous and oversized which is right up my alley, but certain pieces like the oversized (and one sized!) woolcoat for instance, sizes quite big, and I felt a little drowned in it with my 5ft’8in. However, it’s still one of my favourite pieces along with the blue turtle knit, and wide leg suit…..and many other beautiful things both in the women and men’s(!) collection.

Golden

If it’s allowed to wish for a pair of expensive and gorgeous heels on a regular Tuesday morning then here’s mine, suede snakeskin heels by Pierre Hardy over here please!
PS: On another note, to all of you across the sea on the east coast, please stay safe!
